Davit Kiria Joins Stacked ONE Super Series Ranks

Davit Kiria

Georgian superstar Davit Kiria is the latest addition to the stacked ONE Super Series roster.

The hard-hitting kickboxer has inked a multiple-bout deal to compete in the featherweight division of ONE Championship’s all-striking branch.

32-year-old Kiria boasts an impressive 35-14 record, and has multiple World Titles to his credit, including the Kunlun Fight World Max Tournament Championship, and KFWC Savate World Championship.

In his 14-year professional career, the Ashihara karate stylist has taken on many of the sport’s biggest names, and holds wins over elite opposition such as Andy Ristie, Murthel Groenhart, and Kem Sitsongpeenong.

Kiria has a fascinating style that combines concussive punching with a diverse kicking arsenal, and his signing further strengthens the teeming featherweight ranks.

The Georgian hero will join recent acquisitions — and former opponents — “The Killer Kid” Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong, Tayfun “Turkish Turbine” Ozcan, and Superbon in a quest for the vacant ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Championship.

However, they will have to contend with the likes of ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Champion Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan, “The Boxing Computer” Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex, ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Champion Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy, and many more world-class rivals.

No date has been set for Kiria’s first appearance on the global stage, but he will want to make an immediate impact to set himself apart from the chasing pack when ONE’s 2020 calendar of events resumes in the near future.
